In simple terms diabetes prevents your body converting sugars and starches in your food into energy. The body uses insulin to do this. When diabetes is present the body fails to produce insulin or the insulin it does produce doesn’t work properly (insulin resistance).
We’d love you to join us at Chesford Grange, Kenilworth, Warwickshire on Saturday, 16th September for our first ever national ‘United Through Diabetes’ event.
Put simply, it is our ultimate goal to discover a cure for diabetes. We know that this is a long road but we are intent on maximising the potential by funding the highest quality clinical and scientific research at the very best research institutions in the UK and around the world.
We are funding diabetes research in the UK & around the world in order to understand the causes, prevention, treatment and management - our ultimate goal is to find a cure.
